The garden bird situation is lamentable, however. Despite the snowy conditions, and truckloads of food (seed, nuts and niger in feeders, fruit and cake and seed on the ground), we have the grand total of one female Blackbird, one Dunnock and two House Sparrows taking advantage. :-(
I often see finches flyover, and the Woodpigeons and one semi-regular Mistle Thursh sit in trees in other gardens completely ignoring our offerings.
Don't get it.
